The reason behind the blog...

     I have been toying with the idea of starting a blog for awhile now. It has been a back and forth game in my mind of "should I? or shouldn't I?" Last week, I asked my sisters what they thought. My slightly older than me sister gave me an encouraging thumbs up, telling me "you would be a great blogger." Well, that being said, no promises of greatness, just a real mom of 3 sharing her loves and struggles during this journey called life.
     So, last week is when I really started considering this a little harder than in the past. And, my almost 2 year old gave me that final nudge to blog and enter a world that is mine (and yours if you choose to read and post). In one day, she had done this....
yep, that's peanut butter!!

and this....
K-cups aren't cheap. See that foot print?

all before nap time.....when she looks like this...
Innocent?

Now, I know I am partial, but I think she is about the cutest thing ever. She is my middle child and the girl is WILD! Her name is Mallori. She is so full of joy. She wakes up happy, and goes to bed happy, and is a whole lotta mischievous in between!
I know parents are not supposed to have favorites, but let me be real, if I could have a favorite child, it'd be her. Despite her shenanigans, she has a firm grip on my heart and all she has to do is look at me with that smile and I completely crumble. 
To top off her messy day, we had spaghetti. She eats spaghetti naked, because, well, because of this....

So, if you are reading this and you are a mom, I trust you understand days like this. Days where you want an escape from your life into a good book, a movie, ice cream, a blog, the list could go on. I love my children and they are God's greatest gift to me, but it ain't always easy y'all!

P.S. I promise my posts will not always be about my children. After all, I intend for it to be my escape!
